The revolution of loving yourself
"I love myself....the quietest, simplest, most powerful revolution ever." (Nayyirah Waheed)
One of the biggest lessons I've had to learn is to love and nurture my body. I've had to learn to take care of it physically through nutrition and exercise. I've had to learn to make space for downtime, rest and relaxation rather than staying in a constant state of busyness. I've learned stress reduction and breathing techniques to relieve muscle tension.
And I've had to learn to appreciate my body's appearance, too... grays, wrinkles, rolls and all, because I used to look in the mirror and only see the things that I didn't like. Now I am able to look at myself in the mirror and see things I love, too. A revolution, indeed.
What do you appreciate about YOUR body?
What is something you can do for your body to show your appreciation...? A bath? A massage? A walk in the mountains?
Choose something to nourish yourself and commit to doing it this weekend.
Body love isn't frivolous or selfish.
Our body does so much for us.. let's return the love.
